"Mighty Like Us"

Instruments: Synths, Drums

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Humorous

Only 6 monophonic synths and a drum set in this entire, extremely peppy, undeniably enthusiastic, off-kilter, oddly satisfying electronic piece! Even at that, it gets pretty dense near the end.

Try this one! You'll like it! (you'll probably like it... figure about 90 percent guaranteed to like this piece by the end.) The uncompressed download comes with a mix done using electronic drums. It has a very different and more machine-like feel. Chances you'll like that one are lower... but it is totally usable for a harsher feel. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Christmas Rap"

Instruments: Chimes, Sleigh Bells, Drums, Synths

Feel: Bright, Uplifting

I was commissioned to do some music for the play "Twas The Night Before Christmas" by Ken Ludwig. The mp3 download here is the main holiday-themed rap from near the end of the play. The uncompressed download comes with that as well as the Girl/Mouse rap from earlier in the play - which you can hear on Soundcloud as "La Souris". The full download also has the exciting fanfare intros to the holiday rap. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Baba Yaga"

Instruments: Percussion, Synths, Piano, Voice

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mystical

A little smooth, a little edgy, this has some wicked percussion in it. I forget how many drums there are in this - but it is quite a lot. Doesn't overpower, though. This one could also be considered 140 beats per minute, depending on how you count. It is right in that grey area. And no, I don't know what the words mean... I'm not even certain of the language, or if it is a language. The uncompressed download comes with an extra No Vocals Mix. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Suave Standpipe"

Instruments: Bass, Accordion, Drums, EP, Guitar, Horns, Organ, Synth, Sax, Vibes

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed

You know what's cool? A standpipe in the winter. I imagine this one with a hip mustache and a plaid beret. Enough of the imagery, this is a little downtempo chill piece with lush horn punctuation. Suitable for: walks in the rain, time-lapse videos, sad cooking shows. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Fretless"

Instruments: Guitar, Ukulele, Drums, Bass, Glockenspiel, Music Box

Feel: Bright, Relaxed, Uplifting

Nice, forward-pulling piece pretty much guaranteed to offend no one. This piece is a little more complex than others in this genre because of the multiple countermelodies. They clear out many times, and make room before coming back in. You can make your own mixes with the uncompressed downloads to only include the melodies you want if you like!

"Groundwork"

Instruments: Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

Stop it! Stop complaining, it is supposed to end like that! This is a loopable piece. Why? You never know how long your voice-overed tour of the cardboard factory is going to take... Or your real estate tour... Or your appendectomy video... Or your video of that one train by your house. Uncompressed download comes with a faster version, and a slower version.

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving

This one is just cool. If you just tried to dance to this and fell over, that's because every measure is missing one beat. Still it grooves quite well, assuming you can groove in 7/4 time. Uncompressed download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Upbeat Forever"

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Drums, Horns

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

Ska! Ska! Ska! At least, I hope it gives that impression. Works pretty well for a lively background to most anything! This was written for an improv comedy group... so they would have something reasonable to sing to - if an audience member suggests it. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

This has a little bit of early music flair to it with a nice vocal performance (if you don't like the vocals, you can get a version without in the super download). I've listened to this piece non-stop for like an hour. Still beautiful! The least you could do is listen to this once! It is only a few minutes. Go ahead!

The year is... I have no idea. Timeless. Could be now, could be in the 1950s. Super cool jazz for your hardcore detectives! Also useful for beat poets! Also useful for ennui or boredom! Well, interesting sorts of boredom. You can download this in high quality with separate instrument files here!
